Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

How did you download a non compatible version? Did you manually find a download, and try to force it into place?

I ask because, apple software update wont install non compatible versions automatically.

Also, besides safari do you have another working browser, such as google chrome or Firefox?

Im here. Ive just seen your messages.

As youve found out, safari issues like this can be tough to fix when you try to install a version thats not compatible onto your system. For that reason, Im going to send an offer for remote support, where I can connect to your mac from here and work on solving this issue directly.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
